Description

This dataset consist of simulated hourly power production from an Enercon E82 Turbine at 100 m hub-height. It describes the hourly power output a 1MW turbine would produce in each 0.01° grid cell for the years 2016 and 2017.

100 m wind speed data was taken from the COSMO-1 model (Consortium for Small-scale Modeling 2017), which has a 0.01° horizontal resolution. The domain covered is the whole of Switzerland, with the exclusion of lakes. As such, the number of 0.01◦ pixels within Switzerland amounts to 48657. Conversion to power output was done based on the power curve of the Enercon E82 Turbine. As power output is lower at altitude due to lower air density, we corrected for this effect as described in (Kruyt et al. 2017).

Please cite the following paper in connection with the dataset:
